Did you know that in addition to other important public lands such as the Sandia Foothills Open Space, the Petroglyph National Monument and the Rio Grande Valley State Park, the City of Albuquerque Open Space Division preserves over 366 acres of farmland within the Albuquerque area?

We’ve joined forces with local farmers, businesses, and conservation organizations to bring attention to local agriculture and how you can help preserve the traditions of farming in our great city.
